"In My Head" Collection, Tristina Dietz Elmes
Curatorial Review by Kate Devereaux
December 2, 2015 | SPECTRUM Miami
With innovative designs and illuminating color, mixed-media artist Tristina Dietz Elmes breathes life into her large-scale abstract pieces with an innate energy and obvious passion. By using oil and acrylic paints, her work juxtaposes bright, opaque line work with a translucent background and a glossy smooth, begs-to-be-touched finish. In her studio, she lets her love of color guide her when painting thought-provoking works that give viewers a glimpse into her world. With her new series “In My Head,” Dietz Elmes depicts remarkable visual texture with undulating color punctuated by the sensuous curves of ecstatically thrown liquid oil and topped off with bubbles of painted resin. The timeless aesthetic of her paintings in conjunction with their unique composition are intriguing aspects that embody an evolution in today’s Modern Abstraction.

It's such a thrill to visit my artwork and see it stunningly hung and lit in beautiful galleries. Imagine my surprise today when I stopped by the Artblend Gallery in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to pick up copies of the newest Artblend Magazine... and found my large painting "Into the Blue" in the window! Woo Hoo!
I'm holding the newest Artblend Magazine in my hands that will be in Barnes & Noble for sale soon, and you'll find my painting "In My Head" on page 85. So much excitement today!
If you're in Fort Lauderdale on Saturday, October 24, please join me at the Artblend Fall Exhibition Opening Reception from 6-8 pm, 2736 East Oakland Park Blvd, 33306, where you'll get lost in the depths of my painting "Into the Blue" and be mesmerized by the other fantastic artworks in this spectacular space while being entertained by me and my fellow Artists as we sip wine, eat delicious snacks and share stories of wonderment. See you there! :D
On Saturday, September 19, I dropped off one of my latest Black Magic series paintings, hot out of the studio, to the Armory Art Center in West Palm Beach, Florida, for the 2+3 Artist's Organization HUMAN IMAGE show. My black and white (and a little grey thrown in for fun) mixed media abstract painting, "Lovers Embrace", will be on exhibit and available for sale from September 26 to October 24, 2015, along with other fabulous artworks by members of my 2+3 professional artist's group.
This exhibit is a must-see! Here are the show details:
As Artists in South Florida are gearing up for the coming winter tourist / buyer / collector season, I am painting my heart out! I have fallen in LOVE with black, white and RED. I'm feeling the maximum contrast in this series punctuated with color speaks to the desire in us to seek out those moments of passion in the sea of our existence within the divine Yin & Yang.
This Sea of Passion series will all be painted square, beginning with 12 in x 12 in sizes, then moving to 18 x 18, 20 x 20, 24 x 24, 36 x 36, and 48 x 48. The beauty in the square shape allows for stunning larger 2 x 2 (4 paintings total) row configurations, 3 x 3 (9 paintings total) row configurations, and extended vertical or horizontal positioning to satisfy any interior design space need.
Clean, crisp, and graphically pleasing, simply use the CONTACT tab on my website to check the Sea of Passion paintings availability or to request a custom commissioned painting or set of paintings. I look forward to satisfying your Artistic desires!
Artist's note - this series has been renamed White Magic.
